Kathy Bates... And sleep I will no more.

I can't believe I've never talked about Misery.

Misery is a movie that fascinated me from a young age, when I was twelve, specifically.
I instantaneously fell in love with it. The claustrophobic atmosphere, the desolate characters, the slow and haunting script, and who isn't fascinated by Annie Wilkes? 'He didn't get out of the cock-a-doody car!'

I am your number 1 fan!!!

Misery is without a doubt one of the best horro films of the 90's, and in my opinion, Stephen King's third best adaptation into a movie behind Shawshank Redemption and Dolores Claibourne. This is TRUE horror, there's no monsters, no mega special effects, just Kathy Bates who is truly made the big time as one of the scariest villains in horror movie history. It's about a man named Paul Sheldon, he's an author, made incredibly famous by his popular books, specially his series called "Misery", the books are apparently about a woman in the old days who goes through heavy times in her life and he shares her pain and strength with the readers. When he finishes his last Misery book, he decides to celebrate and is heading back for his daughter's birthday, but he gets caught in a horrible blizzard...
